Need help with details about Short term visit pass. Currently my wife just resigned from her employment and in STVP , she was in S-Pass previously. Now my plan is to travel back to home country and return back in Visit pass and extend for 89 days. What is the minimum number of days after her departure I should wait to apply for Visit pass. Also is it possible to extend for 89 days given that I have a local sponsor willing to visit ICA. Please help me out in knowing more about this. Thanks in advance

There is no magic number.

That her husband is here will be in her favour when coming back.

One week and back, as long as you are with her on return should suffice.

Local sponsors etc don't carry weight unless it is a spouse or sibling or parent.

What passport do you hold?

Holding Indian passport, say if we depart Singapore on Oct 11th . When it would be wise to apply for a visit pass. So that she can return back on 23rd Oct. Also I read that we are eligible to extend the visit pass only once during the visit. So in order to get 89 days of stay I should extend initially by visiting the ICA directly with the sponsor?

Indian passport holders may have tough time extending visa, based on what I have seen.

From what I know, even if you go with sponsor (??? Who is this sponsor???) not likely beyond another 30 days

ICA will recommend initial online extension, and no visits to ICA unless the person is closely related to you.

89 days including the initial 30 days works if YOU, as spouse, is a PR or SC.

Since you hold Indian passport Be prepared if the initial extension itself is rejected.

Try to work on plan B.

DP, or another job...

All foreign visitors must ensure that they meet or possess the following entry requirements stated by the Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA). New Zealand passport holders do not require a visa to enter Singapore for business or for social visit purposes.
